A new scientific age

We are at the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution. A revolution underpinned by computational technologies, and massive amounts of data.

This is not just a revolution in how we collect, analyse, and use information in every aspect of our lives. It is a paradigm shift, a fundamental change of the mind, and a new scientific age.

For over 50 years, Essex has been the intellectual home of the world’s leading experts in data science.

The Institute for Analytics and Data Science is a centre of excellence that connects with scholars, businesses, institutions, and authorities, to work on their data needs.
